“Simply amazing - what a great first four days to our honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Lovely staff and excellent rooms. We were in Deluxe Lanai 4 - highly recommended and the outdoor bathroom is really lovely. It's great to lie in the bath (as I did once) as the sun goes down with the sound of the crickets goes on around you.

Free shuttle in an dout of down is lovely, and the complimentary afternoon tea each day was lovely. Also, the food is outstanding, particularly the breakfasts - such wonderful fresh juices and fresh fruit plates, plus the loveliest Mie Goreng, Nasi Goreng and Bubur Ayam ever.

Free rice paddy trek was also great. We spent four nights here as part of our honeymoon and it was PERFECT. Staff are lovely and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Deluxe Lanai 4 was lovely!

Nice little hotel. This is a no frills hotel, but that is what is nice about it. The only drawback is the shuttle does not start until 10 am, so if you want to do morning yoga you will have a good walk into town, but it is at least down the hill.

We stayed in Waka Namya from 16th to 19th June 2012. It was a wonderful stay. The resort has its own chharacter with a private swimming pool with almost every cottage. It is very close to Ubud (15 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive by fre shuttle) but at the same time in the middle of rural environment. The staff here are very nice and helpful. Stay in Waka Namya was one of the high points of our trip.

Set amongst rice fields in the hills of Ubud this hotel is comfortable but still with the old world Bali charm. The staff are very gentle and helpful. The rooms are different but fun. There is your own outdoor private bathroom - you can literately shower in the sun. The four poster bed has full netting making it feel very special. No TV but does have a basic mini bar. The massages are great at $40 per hour. The pool is small but nice. Very small number of guests. You can walk into the main street of Ubud in 15 mins or get the free hotel shuttle bus to drop you off and pick up. A taxi will cost less than $5. Breakfast is included - not amazing but good. The hotel organized very good cycling and white water rafting tours which seemed to be a little negociable in price. The free 7:30am rice paddy walk is a good way to see what's outside the hotel wall and orientate yourself. If you want 5 star luxury then go somewhere else, but if you want to get away from the TV, nightlife and everything else you will enjoy this hotel for a few days.

We stayed in the waka namya for 4 nights in april and had a lovely stay. The staff are really friendly with lots of advice. the shuttle bus is great for getting to and from the centre, although it is not a far walk. The rooms are lovely, comfortable beds and plenty of space. The bathroom particularly the outside shower was excellent and everything is spotlessly clean.
The breakfast is tasty and very well presented and we had dinner there one night which was also good.
I would thoroughly recommend staying here if you are visiting Ubud.
